Bladder weakness is not a normal part of the aging process, nor should it be accepted as a normal part of life after childbirth. Bladder weakness is a condition and shouldn’t simply be ‘managed’ through the use of containment pads.
A drug-free, safe, non-surgical solution, the Perfect PFE Pelvic Floor Exerciser gives you freedom from the use of containment pads and can help sufferers return to a more normal lifestyle.
The Perfect PFE Pelvic Floor Exerciser is small and easy to use, with digital controls and 4 programs which have been clinically tested to provide long-term relief from incontinence.
The Perfect PFE sends a stimulation to your pelvic floor through a vaginal probe, working your pelvic floor muscle for you and enabling you to develop your own muscle control.
- Treatment sessions last for 20 minutes a day and can be easily scheduled into your daily routine – whether it’s whilst reading in bed, watching TV or just having some time to relax.
- Along with pelvic floor exercises, the Perfect PFE gently tones and strengthens your pelvic floor muscle which in-turn improves the symptoms of incontinence (bladder weakness).
- Suggested treatment time is for a period of 12 weeks, however many women see significant results in as little as 3-4 weeks.
- After the inital treatment period, the ‘Tone’ program should be used for 20 minutes a day, for just one day a week to maintain the condition of your strengthened pelvic floor.
The Perfect PFE Pelvic floor excersiser can also be used with an anal probe for the improvement of symptoms of bladder weakness in men, and of faecal incontinence (please contact us for more information).
Key features of the Perfect PFE Pelvic Floor Exerciser include:
- Comfortable Stimulation – gentle, comfortable stimulation with fine-tune adjustment settings for different levels of intensity
- Optional Programmes – 4 preset programs for optimal choice
- Safety Duration Override – unit will turn off after 20 minutes to ensure the pelvic floor muscle is not overworked
- Discreet Probes – comes with a specifically designed probe for ease of use
The Perfect PFE provides relief from 3 forms of incontinence:
Urge Incontinence describes an overactive bladder. A person may experience a sudden and strong urge to go to the toilet but are not always able to hold on, or have to go so frequently that it becomes inconvenient.
Stress Incontinence describes the involuntary leakage of urine when a person sneezes, coughs, strains or makes sudden movements. It is particularly common in women and occurs when the bladder neck and the other mechanisms that act to hold urine in the bladder are not working properly.
Mixed Incontinence is a combination of both Urge and Stress Incontinence.
